Ivanhoe Way (in two halves)

Distance: 36m
Walked: 7th & 8th August 2010

Not feeling quite ready to take the challenge for this year (that's the full 36m in less than 15 hours) I decided a good training exercise would be to do the full loop in two halves, with a sleep in between.

I live virtually on the route, so I drove my car to the furthest point from home - Stanton-under-Bardon so that I could walk half the distance, have tea and sleep, then finish the walk and finish at my car.

I didn't get as many photos as I could have because a few miles in on the first day I thought my camera had packed up. It turned out that the batteries I'd bought in an emergency on the way to the start were useless for anything other than remote controls.

Lots more photos are here at Flickr

What an awesome set of photos, Pea. You could turn those into a book or a calendar. You make the quintessential English countryside look achingly beautiful.

Thank you Dive. It's funny you should say that... I've been taking millions of photos on a 'good enough' camera for nearly a year now, and have planned how I want to lay it out! Look out for it very soon!

Yay! That'll be cool.
